The property at at 11 Wampum Hill Road straddles the towns of Weston and Wilton.
Between the main house and the guest house there are almost 20 rooms including ten bedrooms and eight bathrooms. “The main house was built in 1840 by Wilton’s prominent Sturges family on an original land grant and was sensitively enlarged in 1927 to become the retreat of its current owners. It is a wonderful place to live, to appreciate nature, history, and family,” the agent said, adding that it is also one of the few historic family compounds remaining in Fairfield County.
According to the homeowners, the house was originally owned by Wilbur Sturges who was an onion and corn farmer. They said he won a prize at the World’s Columbian Exposition in 1893 in Chicago, also known as the Chicago World’s Fair. Apparently, the prize is located and hanging in the “Little House” on the property, the agent said. The Little House actually has a root cellar underneath it.
